HP Stream 13-c102ng Notebook Review

78% HP Stream 13-c102ng Notebook Review

Colorful. Once again, the second generation of HP's new Stream 13 stands out from the masses with its colors. It is a kind of Windows alternative to inexpensive Chromebooks. The very solid overall concept is, however, affected by some minor flaws.

85% Acer Predator 17 G9-791 Notebook Review

The hunt continues. The Predator 17 is the second device from Acer's new gaming series. Despite the bulky chassis, the cooling solution cannot completely convince us.

Acer Aspire ES1-521-87DN Notebook Review

77% Acer Aspire ES1-521-87DN Notebook Review

Overpriced. The Aspire cannot boast with exceedingly high computing power. Then again, it pleases with a very low operating noise and decent keyboard. However, Acer demands the ridiculous price of 500 Euros (~$557) for the laptop.

Lenovo IdeaPad 100-15IBD Notebook Review

75% Lenovo IdeaPad 100-15IBD Notebook Review

Low-cost Core i3. Laptops from the low-cost sector are mostly equipped with Braswell processors or AMD APUs nowadays. Neither of these is the strongest of their kind. Lenovo has taken a different approach and installed a Core i3 processor from the Broadwell generation in its IdeaPad.

Acer Aspire R13 R7-372T Convertible Review

86% Acer Aspire R13 R7-372T Convertible Review

Now with Thunderbolt 3. The Aspire R13's main distinguishing factor is the quad-hinge design, which allows for several different display positions and hence operating modes. Even sans those hinges, the Aspire would still appeal, as it does well in almost all categories. Along with an update to the Skylake-generation of processors, the new model now also contains a Thunderbolt 3 port.

Rise of the Tomb Raider Notebook Benchmarks

Rise of the Tomb Raider Notebook Benchmarks

Precision landing. After several rather poor PC ports (Batman Arkham Knight, Just Cause 3, Call of Duty Black Ops 3, etc.), the latest iteration of Tomb Raider finally leaves a better impression on the PC. We tested the action title on multiple notebook GPUs and checked the performance. Update: GT630M, HD 4000, M385X, Iris Pro 5200, 920M, M280X, Kaveri R7 added.
Asus ZenBook Pro UX501VW Notebook Review

83% Asus ZenBook Pro UX501VW Notebook Review

Skylake all-rounder. The popular UX501 series gets Skylake, DDR4, USB Type-C with Thunderbolt 2.0, and a few other minor changes. Is this a vast improvement over last year's Haswell model?

Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-15ACZ Notebook Review

74% Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-15ACZ Notebook Review

Badly designed. Even though it might not be the fault of the processor manufacturer, AMD-based notebooks do not have the best reputation. The reviewed model of the new Lenovo Y700 confirms this statement. The alleged gaming notebook is hardly suitable for gaming, although the performance should be sufficient in theory.

Lenovo ThinkPad P50 Workstation Review

88% Lenovo ThinkPad P50 Workstation Review

Also a success with 15 inches? Following our review of the ThinkPad P70, we have a look at the smaller ThinkPad P50 from Lenovo. The two devices are very similar in many respects, but there are also important differences. Those include the display as well as the more complex maintenance, but also the longer battery runtimes. Our review unit also has a problem with the Turbo Boost most of the time.

Lenovo G70-80 80FF00H0GE Notebook Review

76% Lenovo G70-80 80FF00H0GE Notebook Review

Desk worker. Lenovo's G70-80 is an inexpensive office device for your desk. The notebook does not set any performance records, but it is sufficient in practice. There are no major complaints for a price of 400 Euros (~$435).

We have tested in detail how the Dell Precision 7710 actually performs.

89% Xotic PC Asus G752VY Notebook Review

Vapor cooler. After recently checking out the "entry-level" configuration with the G752VT, it's now time to move up to the G752VY with Asus' vaunted vapor cooling solution. Is this really a revolution for notebooks or just another empty marketing term?

MIFcom EG7 (Clevo N170RF) Notebook Review

86% MIFcom EG7 (Clevo N170RF) Notebook Review

Performance boost. TThe GeForce GTX 965M, which thus far has rarely been the graphics processor of choice for laptop manufacturers, has received a new breath of life. Nvidia's update has significantly increased the GPU's maximum clock rate. But how significant is the difference in performance compared to the 2015 version? Our question exactly. We used the MIFcom EG7 to uncover the answer.

Lenovo ThinkPad P70 Workstation Review

89% Lenovo ThinkPad P70 Workstation Review

The return of the 17-inch workstation. Lenovo now offers a 17-inch workstation for the first time in almost five years. Contrary to the current trend, however, you do not just get a consumer device with professional components. Was it worth the wait?

HP EliteBook 745 G3 Notebook Review

85% HP EliteBook 745 G3 Notebook Review

Forget cheap. A high-end laptop based on AMD hardware - we have not seen that for quite some time. HP dares this experiment, and installs the fastest Carrizo APU alongside an SSD and a WQHD IPS panel in its EliteBook 745 G3. But just how well can the 1300 Euro (~$1404) machine stand up to the Intel competition?

87% Schenker W706 (Clevo P771DM) Workstation Review

Powerhouse. Schenker's mobile workstation models traditionally signify high performance for a fair price. In particular the big 17-inch W706 leaves little to be desired in terms of performance. We have extensively tested how the recently refreshed powerhouse performs in practice.

Schenker XMG P406 (Clevo P640RE) Notebook Review

86% Schenker XMG P406 (Clevo P640RE) Notebook Review

Small rocket. Serious gaming devices with a 14-inch screen are rare; the majority of gamers prefers a larger screen instead of a higher mobility. At least the compact dimensions do not prevent extreme performance, which is proven by Schenker's new device. Chassis and input devices are great. So the only thing we have to find out is whether the display, sound and emissions can meet the high expectations as well.

83% MSI GS40 6QE Phantom Notebook Review

Hot performance dwarf. Skylake quad-core, GTX 970M and a decent 14-inch display: MSI’s device in the pretty narrow segment of ultra-mobile gaming notebooks can meet all the performance expectations. So much performance does, however, require some compromises in other areas.
